am i ready yet?
    #4584965 - 08/26/05 08:28 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

being a newbie to this whole thing, I'm looking for some updated info, tips and tricks!
This is my second attempt to grow, I'm using the pf tek (first grow was a kit....being its hard as hell for me to obtain a print :frown:) so with that print i made my syringe and followed the instructions on this link http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23593
so far my result is this:

it's not pinning yet. should i wait till it starts pinning or should i dunk and roll now...it is completely colonized. also should the dunk be a 24 hour dunk in cold water or how?
This is my first pf tek simple because i needed to get my prints going before they started to lose life due to age and because i cant get prints any where in this state...too bad for me!

you dont have to dunk...dunk & roll... or anything unless you want to....  if that was mine, i'd take it out and put it into a rubbermaid container with a window on top(birth it)....
:go for it:

Birth it and definietly dunk and roll it! Yeah, you don't have to but, it's extemely beneficial. You lose alot of moisture during colonization. Dunking puts alot of water back into the cake and rolling in verm helps retain that water through out the fruiting cycle, increasing yeilds.

24 Hours at room temperature.
Cold shocking is only effective for gourmet mushrooms, and will actually slow the pinning.

Sorry Jabberwocky, But I started cold shocking as I learned from Hyphae. Definately cold shock, dude.It makes for a more even pin set. If you need more motivation, just look at Hyphae's pics.
